Spaghetti Bolognese is a traditional Italian pasta dish from Bologna. It is a dish that you often see on the menu in restaurants, but unfortunately, it is very rarely made with the love it deserves. The longer you let the sauce simmer, the richer it becomes. You should let it simmer for at least two hours, but preferably four hours.
Cut the pancetta into small cubes and fry it in the pan in olive oil over medium heat, for about 5 minutes. While the pancetta is frying, chop the onion, garlic, celery and carrot. Now add them to the pan and saute for a few minutes. Now you add the minced beef and saute for an additional 4-5 minutes. Now add a few teaspoons. salt, a little pepper, and the oregano, and then the peeled tomatoes, red wine and sugar. Finally add the tomato concentrate. The sauce should now simmer slowly over low heat for 4 hours. Remember to taste for salt near the end.
When the sauce is ready cook the spaghetti and serve with freshly grated parmesan and possibly. a few fresh basil leaves.
